A Field of Wild Flowers


It was intoxicating. I had immediate sensory overload. While driving down dirt roads yesterday, we happened upon a field of wild flowers – about 3/4 acre of color.

I hardly waited for Julie to bring the car to a full stop before I jumped out. And then I was overwhelmed. I didn’t know how to capture a field of tiny dots of color bouncing in the wind. I didn’t know where to start – so I started clicking and moving and changing depth of field. I took landscapes, I took macros, and found beautiful combinations of flowers. I took them all.20150730-DSC_0072I learned a great deal – as I always do when I am stuck and have to experiment. I wish I could go back but I think we would have a hard time finding it because when we wonder, we only know our approximate location. In other words we are temporarily lost.

The good news is that you and I can get lost together in my field of wild flowers as you enter my gallery.

  1. These photos are stunning! May I please use one of the pictures of the field of flowers to illustrate Luke 12:27 : “If then God so clothes the grass, which today is in the field and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much more will He clothe you, O you of little faith?” I am making illustrated study guides for the book of Luke for children ages 10-16 to use to help them memorize whole chapters, or the whole book. When finished, they will be available for free download here: http://readyanswers.org/PathfinderBibleExperience/P19/P19.html Thanks for your consideration, Shelley Houser


  2. We were just talking a few days ago about how hard it is to make the camera see what the eye sees with all those small flower heads – I think you did a stunning job and the images bring real peace across the internet. Thank you. 🙂


    • What a wonderful compliment, David. Julie and I were both overwhelmed by the difficulty. I took a lot of wide angle shots, but was surprised by which ones worked. There were a lot of them that didn’t. 🙂
